On a six-acre homestead in Vermont, nestled in the trees, sits this amazing luxury yurt — equipped for all four seasons! Just outside the yurt is a large curved deck where you’ll find an outdoor shower and the outhouse, along with two lawn chairs where you can sit and sip coffee while enjoying nature.

Inside the yurt is a double bed, seating, and a kitchenette where you can easily cook full meals. There’s a wood-burning stove you can use in the cool months to keep the yurt warm and toasty. This is a perfect romantic getaway!

Today I’m really excited to share this enchanting wooden yurt with all of you, mostly because my husband and I actually stayed here last summer and can vouch for how awesome it is. I’m pretty obsessed with yurts, so getting to vacation in one was a dream come true, and this one was particularly amazing because of the history — it was built by Bill Coperthwaite in 1974, the pioneer of American yurt-building!

It’s nestled in the woods/pasture of the South of Monadnock intentional living community, and looks like something out of a storybook. The walls are all tilted out, so you walk through a funky door into the main room. My favorite part of the yurt by far is the cozy book-nook. It was the perfect spot to sit down with my morning coffee before getting ready for the day’s adventure.

You access the bedroom via ladder stairs, and it has a huge skylight for star-gazing! It was incredibly romantic and peaceful. Best of all, the hosts were incredibly kind, and supplied us with local maple syrup and farm-fresh eggs upon arrival. Can’t recommend this place enough! Book your stay on Airbnb here.
